At a sometimes unruly meeting that ran until 1 a.m. Wednesday, the City Council passed the bulk of Dana Point's $12.5-million operating budget for 1997-98. Because the city's fiscal year begins July 1, the council avoided having to call an eleventh-hour session Monday to finish the job. Instead, the council approved the plan except for a few provisions on which members could not agree.

After a four-hour debate this week on how to deal with a $4-million operating budget deficit, the City Council declared that three programs will not be affected: drug education in schools, senior outreach services and Neighborhood Watch. "It's a strong message to the public that the council has taken a stand," Mayor Dave Sullivan said Tuesday. In recent weeks, the council has been deluged with pleas from supporters of the three programs not to eliminate them.

If there is a problem with the $73-million budget passed Monday by the City Council, it is that the city has been too conservative about the amount of money available to spend this fiscal year. "We will bring the budget up again in August," Mayor Joe Erickson said, "because we expect to have a lot more revenue than we think now."

Residents and businesses would see some fee increases, and 30 city positions would be eliminated under the budget being proposed for fiscal 1996-97. The $120-million budget plan, presented for the first time at a City Council study session last week, would take steps to close a projected $10-million deficit caused by revenue losses, including a $1-million drop in property taxes because of declining values.

City spending will rise just a fraction in fiscal 1996-97, according to a preliminary budget presented by the city manager this week. The city could keep the proposed budget of $49.3 million close to last year's budget of $49.1 million by leaving some vacant jobs unfilled and using more contract workers, City Manager David L. Rudat said. Residents will not see any increase in taxes, fees or rates, Rudat said, and should not notice any drop in services if a City Hall reorganization goes well.

This year's budget for the city of Santa Paula has dropped $1 million compared to last year, and it is expected to drop another $600,000 next year. If this trend continues, many city services will suffer and residents may be deprived of having their own 911 dispatchers and clean streets, City Manager Arnold Dowdy said. "If the amount of revenues doesn't increase, it's going to get harder and harder to do the things that citizens want us to do," Dowdy said.

The Glendale City Council on Tuesday will continue hammering out the details of the city's $330 million 1995-96 budget. City officials say Glendale's budget outlook has continued to improve slowly but steadily from the recessionary problems of 1992-93, when dwindling revenues forced the city to lay off a handful of employees and cut services. This year's budget, though $2.
